The Apurva Kempinski Bali’s Powerful Indonesia campaign unfolds over 12 monthly themes, featuring creative collaborations, an empowerment partnership with schools, eco-friendly activities and a platform for individuals with disabilities. It’s an extraordinary celebration showcasing the nation’s unique power through art, culture, tradition, heritage and music.

Indonesia: The Land of Art

‘Indonesia: The Land of Art’ is a vibrant celebration that unveils the rich and diverse artistic heritage of Indonesia. Unlike traditional art exhibitions, this event brings the gallery experience directly to the audience. The Pendopo Lobby of The Apurva Kempinski Bali transforms into a captivating showcase of artistic wonders, with live art studios designed by Kita Art Friends to reflect the unique character of each featured artist.

Art enthusiasts can immerse themselves in this exclusive exhibition, which is open from 9am to 9pm every day.
